Last Tuesday I told you about the need to focus on replicating great teaching rather than shrinking class sizes. The post basically did the following:
- Noted that, according to research by Mike Antonucci, Colorado has been an exception by not hiring faster than student enrollment growth
- Point readers to an Education Next podcast highlighting the research on effective teaching techniques by Doug Lemov and Steven Farr
- Connected Lemov’s and Farr’s ideas to Colorado’s statutory push to enhance educator effectiveness
So how surprised was I to read this new Colorado Daily piece by my Education Policy Center friend Ben DeGrow that well, basically makes the same points?
